In 1998, Beverley Kingston, a parishioner of Nativity Church, recognised the value of donating surplus household effects to be made available to people in need. This idea led to the opening of Marlborough's first recycling shop - The Blue Door.
The Blue Door is committed to:
Profits from the Blue Door are given back to local not-for-profit organisations in need of extra funding, such as The Marlborough Community Foodbank, Nativity Christian Counselling Service, John’s Kitchen and many other community groups.
